You will often hear the term "judicial activism" tossed about by political types and law professors as a bomb in the continuous argument over the constitutionality of this or that liberal or conservative cause — intent of the framers and all that. The notions of constitutionality, liberalism and conservatism are not, really, part of the definition of judicial activism; what the terms means is this: When a judge ignores the letter of the law, substituting it with his or her own law or when a lower court commits such a slight-of-hand or if that lower court just makes a mistake and get it wrong. You have a right to appeal such decisions to a higher authority. In Nebraska, that means an appeal to the Nebraska Court of Appeals and/or the Nebraska Supreme Court.

At Higgins Law, we have experience in both the Nebraska Court of Appeals and Nebraska Supreme Court.
